Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free

So with my new job, that I am loving at the moment, comes some cooking(which I enjoy).  However, there's a part of it I've never mixed up before...cooking for people on a diet of gluten-free and dairy-free meals.  Somebody HELP!
I'm a country girl, raised in Wisconsin,  first born in a farming family.  How can I cook without wheat, milk, cheese, butter and eggs?
Wait a minute, there are eggs in the refrigerator and four pounds of butter sitting next to them.  "Excuse me, but I thought you said you wanted me to cook up some delicious meals that are gluten-free and dairy-free?"
"Oh well, sometimes, we fudge a bit."  Whew!  I'm thankful for that!!!  I don't have to totally give up on my upbringing.
In the meantime, I'm getting acquainted with Whole Foods.  First gluten-free cooking class tomorrow evening.
If you're so inclined, or have the knowledge I seek, feel free to share a tip or two and a recipe or three with me on anything gluten-free.  Meanwhile, stay tuned for some gluten-free bloopers that I'm sure will be in my future.  Did I mention that there are small children involved?  They are the worst critics.

Happy Anniversary to me and my love

We are celebrating our 7th Anniversary today.  Seven years ago, I left beautiful Colorado to live in Oklahoma with the love of my life.  Still missing Colorado, but loving my husband more everyday.

Happy Anniversary to my Mom and Brian

My achin' body

Last weekend, my lower body was in pain from walking.  Today, my upper body is sore from lifting boxes and other things that come along with moving into a large home.  My employer made the move this past Friday and I am officially employed full time. 

Yea, for me!!!  I made the walk again this morning.  Hopefully, I'll continue on this journey of getting in shape.

Encouragement is always welcome!
